The activities of the EFLA are diverse, but the same idea underlies all of them: to contribute to the development and to a better knowledge of Food Law, considered as a specific sector of general law.

From working groups to congresses, from seminars to information meetings, the different activities of the EFLA are all means to attain these goals. The ad hoc working groups occasionally bring together members of the Association who want to jointly examine specific subjects such as the relationships between foodstuffs and pharmaceutical products, industrial and commercial property rights, etc.

However, what has made the reputation of the EFLA is above all its major International Congresses. The theme, the subjects approached and the speakers who approach them are selected by the Council.

These Congresses take place in the main working languages of the Association - English - to which are sometimes added, according to the number and the requirements of the participants, French, German, Spanish or Italian. Their high level of quality and the success achieved each time have contributed to a great extent to make the Association known within interested circles.
